In an Australian first, using Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology, this summer, Aerometrex has carried out a detailed survey of the bushfire fuel loads across some of the most densely populated, high risk areas of the Adelaide Hills, including Stirling, Aldgate, and Bridgewater.
Read the full news release.
Our world’s first bushfire fuel load mapping system has become more powerful with three new data sets that will make it more effective in bushfire preparation and response, and more scalable Australia-wide.
From a single LiDAR capture anywhere in Australia, we can now:
Our data will directly impact fire management from preparation and prevention activities to real-time response during bushfire events.
This page explains our capture method, our new data outputs, and how we can better help the planning, prevention, and direct interventions in bushfires.
